STUDIO GHIBLI PORCO
PRESAGE AND PORCO ROSSO TAKE TO THE SKIES
Presage presents two new timepieces that reveal a completely different and more contemporary form of Japanese artistry. These two timepieces are inspired by the widely acclaimed feature-length film “Porco Rosso,” created by the famous Japanese animation studio, Studio Ghibli.
In 1992, Studio Ghibli released “Porco Rosso.” The film features an early 20th-century pilot who transforms himself into a seaplane-flying pig, Porco, and makes his living chasing sky bandits over Italy and the beautiful Adriatic Sea. With its vivid animation, the film brings to life the romance of the early days of aviation.
The beauty and individuality of Porco’s 1920’s plane, Savoia S-21, are reflected in every detail of the watch. The dial takes its inspiration from the instrument panel of the aircraft with bold hands and numerals and intricate markers. The white and black dials are made of enamel by master craftsman Mitsuru Yokosawa and his colleagues to create the warm beauty that echoes the feel and texture of the materials used in a 1920’s aircraft.
SPRING DRIVE AND AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENTS
SNR047 incorporates the Spring Drive Caliber 5R65, which has an accuracy of ±1 second per day and a power reserve of 72 hours. SNR000 is powered by Seiko’s most advanced chronograph caliber, 8R48, which measures elapsed time up to 12 hours and has a power reserve of 45 hours. The beauty of the movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back, as is the Porco Rosso symbol. On the case back itself is engraved, in Italian, a famous quote from the film, “A pig that does not fly is just a pig.”
The special box comes with an alternative strap and leather cloth. It also carries a message from the film’s director Hayao Miyazaki.
